Wheat knitting lace pattern

Wheat knitting pattern – beautiful lace knitting pattern depicting eyelet wheat ears delicately bound. Background is reverse stockinette stitch. On a bigger garment the pattern can be adjusted by increasing the purl stitches on the right site, thus positioning the wheat flowers columns farther away. Suitable for knit scarves, shawls, sweaters, etc.

Skill level: 2/4 skill-2

Diagram:

For the wheat knitting pattern you’ll need multiple of 14 stitches + 2 edge stitches.
Work the right side following the diagram. Wrong side: Knit the stitches that a purled on the right side. Purl the rest (knitted, yo, k2tog from the right side). Repeat the pattern between the arrows until desired width is reached.

    Love this stitch but after swatching and frogging several times, I studied the photo closely and concluded that the last 8 rows were wrong. This (not including the two edge stitches) is what turned out after a few experiments, to work for me:

    Row 9: P3, (Sl 1 st, K1 st, PSSO), YO, K1, YO, P3, (Sl 1 st, K1 st, PSSO), K 3
    Row 11: P3, (Sl 1 st, K1 st, PSSO), YO, K1, YO, P3, K 1, (Sl 1 st, K1 st, PSSO), K2
    Row 13: P3, (Sl 1 st, K1 st, PSSO), YO, K1, YO, P3, K 2, (Sl 1 st, K1 st, PSSO), K1
    Row 15: P3, (Sl 1 st, K1 st, PSSO), YO, K1, YO, P3, K3, (Sl 1 st, K1 st, PSSO)

    Furthermore, to avoid an unattractive lump on Row 1 and Row 9, for WS Row 8, I did P5, K2, P3, K3 and for WS Row 16, I did P4, K2, P5, K3. Worked for me, and although I only used it for a cotton/linen facecloth, the wheat stitch turned out beautifully! Now to try it on a sweater!

      thank you Kip, I agree the last 8 rows are wrong but I have been unable to figure it out, I will give your method a go. Cheers

    I would love to use this part in a cardigan. I just bought some discontinued 100% silk in sport weight. I may have to design a sweater with your love lhace pattern. 🙂
